Sexual addictions or compulsive behaviors can take over your life, whether it be internet pornography and cybersex, phone sex lines,strip clubs, bath houses, bookstores, cruising spots, or any other form of anonymous sex. It leaves you feeling empty and alone.
It’s estimated that there are more about 20 million sex addicts in the United States, more that those suffering from alcohol or drug abuse. People risk their relationships, jobs, financial security, and their freedom to have sex with another or with themselves. Outwardly, addiction is a way to escape and self-sooth.
Inwardly it’s a searching for connection and ways to find relief from internal wounds, loneliness, and abandonment. Sex addiction sometimes feels like the only way to get this relief. That’s why it’s so difficult to stop, especially without help. Most addicted persons do not have the tools to be intimate so they turn to behaviors that gets them close to this experience, but never satisfying their desires. They repeat the behaviors, yet obtain the same empty results.
We help people develop tools to become intimate and create loving and passionate relationships. Recovering sex addicts go on to have a healthy and satisfying life without the fear of disease, arrest, financial ruin,or many of the other negative consequences they have been living with.
